Magrunner: Dark Pulse, the first-person action puzzle game set in a cyberpunk reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos from Frogwares Studio, will release next week on PS3.

Here’s the description posted on the PS Blog:

The year is now 2048. A handful of young and brilliant citizens have been chosen by Gruckezber Corporation to join the Magtech training program for space exploration. Equipped with a special glove using Gruckezber’s technology, the candidates must solve their way through a huge maze of challenge rooms by magnetically charging objects that attract or repel each other. But when an earthquake disrupts the training program what seemed to be the chance of a lifetime for the candidates becomes a descent into folly and cosmic horror.

In the game you play as Dax Ward, one of the competitors selected to participate in the Magtech training program. Using your Magtech glove, you can power any other Magtech objects with different colored charges. Objects charged with the same color attract each other while objects charged with different colors repel each other. This mechanic would prove its justice once you have three or more objects to interact with all attracting to each other.

Your goal is to navigate through each level using your brain and your Magtech glove.

A video is below.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse will be available on October 22 in the US and October 23 in the UK for PlayStation 3 on PSN and will run you $9.99/€9.99/£7.99.
